I’m pretty late in posting this, but I was working over New Year so it’s been pretty hard to find the time to be productive! I hope you all had a lovely Christmas and New Year and are having a good 2019 so far.
I’ve seen a lot of bloggers setting reading goals for themselves, and thought it would be a fun idea to do the same for myself. I find it hard to stick to goals due to my sporadic shift pattern, so I won’t be setting myself anything too monumental, but I would like to at least achieve some things I didn’t last year — now that I’ve finally crawled out of my rut and got back into the habit of reading regularly!
So, my goals this year are:
– Achieve my Goodreads goal. (It’s only 35 which isn’t a great deal compared to most, but it’s 10 more than my goal last year so it’s a big enough push for me.)
– Read a book recommended by a friend that is outside of my usual genres. (I actually have a couple of these already, so I’d like to push myself to read them!)
– Read a non-fiction book.
– Finish reading a series I’ve started but haven’t yet completed.
– Read more diverse books.
– Work my way through my (still!!) disgusting to-be-read pile.
I’d also like to be more regular with posting on here, and would like to make more of an effort to interact with the bookish community. As well as this, I’ll be trying my best to keep up with trends in the publishing industry since I’ll be starting my Masters in September, and want to be as prepared for that as possible!
I might add more to this list as the year goes on but, as I said, I’m worried about being too ambitious due to my working hours, so I’ll just take it as it comes.
What are your reading goals for 2019?
